WASHINGTON, July 1.
Congressman Aiken was seei
to-day by a representative of the
.Daily Mail and asked for an ex
pression of opinion on the cotton
'mill mergers being organized in
South Carolina, and said:
"This (Iuestion has been pre
seinted 10) me from various stand
points and on several occasions.
Prilarily, I may say, that so
long as the uills merged are con
fined to at siigle state, and so

bhat the nierger lan will mark
bhe end of mill building inl South
Darolina. Almost without ex
Leption mills are built largely by
Northern capital, capital that is
interested in this character of
ivestment. All capital is easily
frightened, and this class espe
ulaly so. When the corporate
head of the merger in the stato
stamps a project with his disap
proval, that is the last of it..
Already there exists a combina
bion of mill presidents in South
Jarolina to discourage the build- '
ng of mills, and the Promoters ,
>f at least one proposed mill sig '
ially failed,. for this reason, %
tfter the usual home subscrip- Ac
;ion had been raised. If a mere I
)rganization is so powerful,what
would be the power of a dictator? 1
"If instead of discouraging
mill building, and consolidation
to rob the farmer of a legitinmate
price for a short crop, every mill
of the South would contribute
to put a dozeni or more active,
permanent agents in China and
South Aierica, covering the in
teorior an( important coast
town r's. these agents not specially
